    Hi there and welcome! Girrrl, I feel ya about having your new babies and being so excited! We've had our birds almost a week & I am up to my eyeballs in all things chicken these days! I didn't get chicks, though, went with young pullets instead. Four of my birds are 2-3 months old, and one is about 4-1/2 months old. I have 5 girls, all different breeds--1 Rhode Island Red (Rhoda), a white leghorn (Felipa), a barred rock (unnamed but temporarily being dubbed "Juanita"), an ameraucana (Bertha), and a welsummer (Martha). Hubby and I noticed last night that we gave them all names that end in A--purely coincidental, too!

    Your family and husband may think you're crazy, but they won't think that when they've got fresh eggs on the breakfast plate!

    Welcome to the flock!
